Keep on lovin’ with Steel Magnolia

Concert Alert:

It’s been awhile since Joshua Scott Jones and Meghan Lindsey graced our television screens to compete in the CMT series, Can You Duet?. While here in Chicago, we’ve had a few opportunities to catch the duo, better known as Steel Magnolia, in the Windy City, a lot has happened personally for the two since they last played on Illinois soil.

For one half of the duo, this Illinois soil is not all too foreign for the now Nashville-based duo. While chatting with the two during their recent stop at Country Thunder USA, I had to ask Jones about his little known Illinois roots.  A native of Charleston, Illinois, Jones explained his fondness for Chicago as he spent many nights in the area while gigging at the northwest suburban Durty Nellie’s nightclub.  He remarked, not in a country band but growing up in downstate Illinois, country music is a natural thing for him.  It’s obvious that Jones is multifaceted when it comes performing to music, especially since he hooked up with one very talented Louisiana girl, Meghan Lindsey.

We talked about their recent release of the duo’s debut, self-titled album and how  it finally made its public appearance earlier this year.  They filled me in on their strict touring schedule which puts the two on the road a lot. You may recall the two paid Illinois a visit when they stopped at the Pontiac Crystal Palace back in February.

My chat with the two wasn’t all about the past, in fact it wasn’t too long after the duo publicly announced their big news about a future gig – and we’re not talking about a concert.  In June, the duo announced they’re planning a 2012 wedding to finalize their long-term engagement.  Lindsey remarked that while they’re excited to finally tie the knot, they’re really busy touring around the country and hope to get all together soon.

Well Meghan and Josh, congratulations, but you’re going to have to put those wedding plans aside for at least one more night.  On Saturday, the two will return to headline Joe’s Bar. Joined by the The McClymonts and Tyler Farr as openers.  Doors open at 7PM and tickets are $10 available through ticketweb.com or at the Joe’s Box office.

Paisley’s walk on water

Paisley’s walk on water

There’s something about Chicago for country star Brad Paisley. Maybe it’s because his wife, Kimberly Williams, spent time in the area when she attended Northwestern or maybe because Chicago has one of the largest country radio stations, and fan base, in the business. What that connection might be remains uncertain but, on Friday, it was… Continue Reading
